Re: Sardinia to Greece

Good to hear you got there safely.

Re: Sardinia to Greece

Re: Jeanneau washboard handle

Fully agree Nigel, if I can locate one with the appropriate centres, I'd go for 316 and replace the top hatch handle at the same time.

However I don't want to elongate the holes to accommodate the...

She's a SO 50 DS 2009. Don't have any pics of the handle or overall dimensions. I measured the centres @90 mm with an old ruler, so maybe +/- 1-2 mm

I'm looking for the replacement black plastic...

Re: Charter Boats, don't you just love them?

The charter snobbery really get's my goat. Too many 'owners' assume just because you are on a charter boat you unworthy to be anywhere near them. I've seen a few funny incidents on charter boats, the...

Definitely a case of buyer beware. I was hoping that some forum members may be able to provide some experiences, good or bad.
